Here's a couple pointers:

If you don't have legal access to the fonts Livezilla demands, nor want to pay for them, you can find similar public-domain fonts and use ttx to "decompile" the font into an XML-like text file. Then you can edit the XML-like file to change the name of the font to whatever font it is you need to spoof, and then "recompile" the XML-like text file into a ttf file.

That spoofing technique works. I've personally done it and used Livezilla as my guinea pig. It gets past the font error messages after you copy them over and make the appropriate registry entries.

Second thought is that MDAC shouldn't be able to install unless Wine is set to mimic one of the following versions of Windows: Win 2000, Win 98, Win ME, Win NT. Later versions of Windows already have what MDAC gives. So you'll have to lower the version of Windows Wine is mimicking to one of those, install MDAC, bring the version of Windows you're mimicking back up, and continue on.
If somehow you got MDAC installed without lowering the version, I'd retry doing that. Also, don't forget to bring the version back up.
